Caritas assists parishes to become inclusive and connected communities.

Waitangi day mass at Newtown Parish, Wellington.

Diversity enriches our communities….Understanding our differences can enrich our common humanity.
- New Zealand Catholic Bishops Conference, 2010

As part of the New Zealand Catholic Bishops Conference five-year pastoral plan, Caritas produced resources to assist parishes and other Catholic organisations consider how well we are reflecting our commitment to cultural diversity in our church life.

Parishes are invited to consider if there is a first step they can make to become more welcoming and inclusive communities; to improve on what is already happening; or to set new challenges for themselves.
